SHABBY PINK & SHABBY BLUE COLOUR WEEKEND FOR ME!!




Hi ladies....well being home alone this weekend i have been busy buying lovely bits & bobs from op shops...& cleaning out my "LINEN" cupboard!!
and with my finds all round have been...
DYING them in shades of PINK & BLUE....
my theme began with the vintage knitting needles i purchased in pink & blue...
especially the BIG SIZE 10 pair with the awesome cream knobs!!!

as well as the gorgeous old crochet blanket in the shabby pale colours i picked up yesterday..

Finishing off with my other butter dishes...fly covers etc...

YEP...this has been a very BUSY SHABBY PINK & BLUE weekend...

Hi Andrea,
Your newly coloured goodies look just gorgeous. It gives them a whole new look.
Glad you had such a productive weekend.

Hey you have been busy!
I love Op shops,Don't get to go often enough and when I do is when I am poor....
If I have enough money I never find anything!

Love the dying idea....Seems to really spark them up!

wow, look at you!

I have to say the pink is my fave, I've never tried to do this and god knows I have enough vintage crochet to try it out on!
